Burnham-On-Sea's seafront lights to be switched on for summer
of illuminations along Burnham's seafront will be switched on
for the summer season this Friday evening (April 22nd).
The Town Council has delayed this years switch-on in order
to save cash.
"From this Friday, the lights will be illuminated each night
from 7.30pm-10pm until mid-May, then from 8.30pm-11.30pm through
until September," Acting Town Council Clerk Denise Emery
A review of the funding of the lights is due to go ahead later
this year when the Town Council is set to launch an appeal for
sponsors. Only essential repairs of the lights are being carried
out in the meantime.
Councillors also recently decided to keep the seafront illuminations
lit during the Christmas period from 6-10pm before switching them
off in early January.
